In case if IPMI interface isn't accessible after update you will have to do the following:

1. Upload IPMICFG tool to the server (you will find required binaries inside the archive):
Code: Select all
wget "ftp://ftp.supermicro.com/utility/IPMICFG/ipmicfg_1.20.1_20140917.zip"

2. Unload(if any) IPMI driver (OpenIPMI or FreeIPMI) on the server:
Code: Select all
/etc/init.d/ipmi stop
/etc/init.d/ipmievd stop

3. Run the following commands:

Reset to the factory defaults:
Code: Select all
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -fd

Disable the DHCP:
Code: Select all
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -dhcp off

Set IP (format:###.###.###.###):
Code: Select all
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -m <IP which should be set for this IPMI>

Set Subnet Mask (format:###.###.###.###):
Code: Select all
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -k <MASK>

Set Gateway IP (format:###.###.###.###):
Code: Select all
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -g <IP gateway>

Enable the Gratuitous ARP:
Code: Select all
./ipmicfg-linux.x86_64 -garp on

4. Log into IPMI using web interface and perform its basic tune. (default login credentials are Login: ADMIN; Password: ADMIN).
